Tennis Fury: The U.S. Open is Here!

The U.S. Open has invaded New York so for the next two weeks, one can expect endless tennis talk across news providers, crowded sports bars, traffic, and A-list celebrity sightings in the city.

You may be inspired to pull out the old tennis racket or to watch Serena smash a tennis ball onto her opponent’s court. No matter the urge, New York has plenty to do during the U.S. Open which will be held every day until Monday, September 8.

If you feel so inclined (and can afford the tickets), why not attend the actual event?? Head over to Flushing, Queens and catch a match at the Arthur Ashe or Louis Armstrong Stadiums. American Express and Grey Goose have sponsored a few special on-site events for attendees including children’s activities and U.S. Open inspired cocktails.

For avid sports bar goers, events like these are yet another reason to cram into a small venue and yell in unison with strangers. Well, have no fear! Enjoy all-you-can-watch tennis matches on the best plasmas in the city at these hotspots:

  • Irish Rover This classic sports pub is located at 37-18 28th Avenue in Queens.
  • Rock McBride’s Also located in Queens, you can’t beat the most friendly neighborhood bar (with the best Happy Hour in Astoria). 27-01 23rd Avenue
  • Legends Heralded as best sports bar in Midtown, this casual bar is a must if you want to stay in the city. 6 West 33rd Street

No worries—there are a few family-friendly viewing options as well. Bryant Park will host U.S. Open watch parties daily 11AM to 1PM and 7PM to 9PM on the Southwest Porch. Brooklyn Bridge Park (Harbor View Lawn) will also host special viewing on a big projector screen daily at 11AM.

If you want to get more active, try hitting a tennis court! Take a lesson at Midtown Tennis Club or find some friendly competition on a public court in the city.

There are lots of ways to feel a part of this year’s U.S. Open! Be sure to use GO Airlink for your transportation needs to Queens during the next two weeks.
